Las Vegas Sands and the Adelson Family Announce $4 Million Relief Fund in the Wake of Mass Shooting

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE: LVS) and the Adelson Family Foundation today announced they are establishing a $4 million relief fund in memory of the people who lost their lives in the Las Vegas mass shooting, as well as honoring the courageous victims, festival-goers, first responders and medical professionals who joined together to save lives.

Sands Cares, the global corporate giving program of Las Vegas Sands, and the Adelson Family Foundation, the charitable giving entity of Dr. Miriam Adelson and Las Vegas Sands Chairman and Founder Sheldon G. Adelson, will each contribute $2 million to organizations providing aid to victims and their families, as well as to support and reinforce our city's resources to respond to crisis and disaster situations.

"No amount of financial resources will erase this terrible tragedy or bring back those who lost their lives because of it," the Adelsons said.  "To honor the memories of those lost, we must help rebuild the lives of people impacted and provide much-needed support to the organizations helping in that effort. Las Vegas is our home and on behalf of every single Las Vegas Sands Team Member and the Adelson family, we pledge to do everything we can to bring our community together, provide support for the victims and their families, and ensure Las Vegas remains the strong and vibrant city it has always been."

The Sands Cares/Adelson Family Las Vegas United Relief Fund extends other company resources provided since the shooting, including in-kind facility and hotel room accommodations for victims and displaced hotel guests, food and water supplies for blood donors, and grief counseling services for affected Las Vegas Sands Team Members.
